The last Debate between the two Presidential Candidates, Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron, which was televised last night, was more like a "Punch and Judy" show !

Both wanted to destabilise each other with slap and tickle style remarks, but on the whole their debate fell short of the conduct expected of a future President of France.

Each Candidate wanted to destroy the program of the other, but neither convinced when presenting his own plans. 

Both failed to find "killer style" remarks like those produced by Giscard D'Estaing in 1974 and Mitterand in  1981.

Macron was the favourite at the start of the Debate and Le Pen failed to fell him.  BUT this is not the end of the saga : on May 7, France will elect the President and in June there will be a General Election of MPs. 

Will there then be a "hung" Parliament, with a "hung President" ?
